In June 1941 Nazi Germany attacked USSR in order to conquer and enslave its people. Soviet army enlisted over 2,000 women snipers. Now Russian artist Olga Sh finds their photos and turn them into full color.
The lady above, Lyudmila P., was known by Nazis as “Lady Death”. Over 300 German soldiers were shot by her. Later she taught younger snipers her skills. Once she remembered: “We were sowing Nazis just as ripe wheat”.
